This DVD consists of two separate films. In the first film, Darfur Eyewitness, former U.S. Marine Brian Steidle describes what he saw while in Darfur with the African Union Monitoring Force in March 2005. In May 2004, Jerry Fowler, Director of the Committee on Conscience at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, traveled to Chad to visit Sudanese refugees who fled the Darfur region of Sudan. In Staring Genocide in the Face, he relays some of the stories he heard about their escape from the genocide.
